When I booked this hotel I requested a non smoking room. When I walked in the room stunk of cigarettes. It was a horrible musty smell. I eventually got uses to the smell but every time I went in or out I would have to wait to get used to it again. The room itself was nice to bad someone ruined it by smoking cigarettes. Also the ac did not constantly blow cold air and the room would get hot quickly. I had it on the lowest settings temp wise and the highest air speed wise. It was not enough. I could see myself coming back but only if I know 100% I'm getting a smoke free room.
This hotel is rated as a 4 star but the room is more like from a 3 star hotel. Some parts of the wall paper are peeling off, furniture's paint are worn out at the edges, air conditioning exhausts are broken. The room looks old. I guess this is what they provide with their mystery hotels. A 3 star room (or even 2) in a 4 star hotel.
History buffs will appreciate Fairfax, once caught between Union and Confederate forces. Monuments to this Civil War heritage include the Fairfax Museum, the Confederate Cemetery, and the Blenheim estate, where stationed Union soldiers wrote poetry on the walls. Nearby, the National Parks Service preserves the Manassas National Battlefield, the site of the Civil War’s first major land battle.
